Bug#712737: release-notes: Ambiguity in section 4.6 regarding whether installer installs kernel-metapackage

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

In the 4.6 it says:

4.6.1. Installing the kernel metapackage

When you dist-upgrade from squeeze to wheezy, it is strongly recommended that
you install a linux-image-* metapackage, if you haven't done so before. This
package may be installed automatically by the dist-upgrade process. You can
verify this by running:


The ambiguity is that it leaves unclear whether the dist-upgrade will install
or not the kernel metapackage.

If i 'read' it another way maybe the intention of the author was: " The dist-
upgrade process can install automatically the new kernel but in order to do
that you should
have in your current stable version installed the kernel metapackage"
